(...) I thank Your Excellency for your kind letter of the 12th; I took a while to answer due to a trip to Minas. I was very happy to receive such good news from Your Excellency and I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you in Rio soon.

Dom Pedro Gastão (1907 - 2007) was the grandson of Prince Gastão of Orléans and Princess Isabel, and brother of the Countess of Paris. He was born in France at Castelo d'Eu, where his paternal grandparents lived during the banishment of the Brazilian imperial family. Throughout his adolescence, the prince only came to Brazil a few times, completed his studies in Europe and settled in Brazil after the Second World War, in Petrópolis.

According to Wikipedia, "There, Dom Pedro Gastão became one of the most popular figures of the imperial family and a kind of ambassador of the monarchical cause and living representative of Brazil's imperial past. He accumulated thousands of documents and works of art in his residence archives. to this day they help tell the story of the so-called Imperial City. It was Pedro Gastão who also received the presidents of the republic on vacation in the city. He was proud of having met all the Brazilian heads of state, from Epitácio Pessoa to Fernando Henrique Cardoso".

Here we have a letter in excellent condition from Dom Pedro Gastão, shortly after his arrival in Petrópolis, during the Second World War. We also appreciate the official seal and the beautiful signature of the Prince.
